with the latest nuclear developments out of japan's tsunami disaster zone. officials have been concerned over radiation levels at the damaged plant in fukushima. they hit dangerous highs on monday and have now dropped back to where the government says they're no longer threat to human health. there have been explosions, though at the reactors number one, two, and three. authorities say water levels are now stable at reactors one and three. the fire is now out at number four. however, reactor number two the still may be in trouble with a new explosion there this tuesday. and questions about whether the containment vessel is breached. there's a no-fly zone in 30 kilometers within the plant. the plant's owners have ordered all but 50 of their workers to leave. and officials say at least 500 people remain within the evacuation zone. here is japan's chief cabinet secretary on what precautions residents should be taking. >> translator: please keep the windows shut. do not use ventilation. and if you are to hang your laundry, please keep them indoors. and the further away you move from the power pla

. many people who live and work in tokyo come from other parts of japan, and now they want to go home. there is definitely more than just a trickle now of families leaving tokyo for other parts of japan because of the fear of radiation. most of the more than 30 million people who live in and around the city, though, leaving is not an option. they have no place to go and if there is a major release of radiation from the fukushima plant, there dawes -- doesn't seem to be a plan what to do either. if there is, the asumi family hasn't been told about it. they are watching the events to the north with growing consternation. they have an 8-month-old baby and they simple isly don't trust what the government is telling them about the lack of danger. >> i don't think so. you don't trust them in? i don't trust them. >> why not? >> because companies say not -- not truth. >> and what is this you have bought? is is this new if >> yeah, new. >> so instead the asumis like millions of other tokyoites are making their own plans. helmets, facemasks and a car standing by to head south at a moment's noti
